Last week, Eminem surprise-dropped his new album Music To Be Murdered By – Side B. As expected, the 16-track LP includes some controversial lyrics pertaining to coronavirus, Rihanna, Mariah Carey and, unsurprisingly, Machine Gun Kelly.
For those of you that are unaware, Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem are in a bit of a feud. Back in 2018, Eminem dropped a diss track towards MGK on his album Kamikaze. Then, after hearing it, MGK recorded his own track “RAP DEVIL” which was a reference to Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP2 single “Rap God.” However, MGK retired the song soon after its release.
However, that didn’t stop Eminem from firing back on “Killshot.” Then, a few months later, MGK alluded to the track on the Hotel Diablo song “FLOOR 13.” At the start of 2020, MGK also dropped “Bullets With Names” in which he seemingly brags about having killed Eminem.
More recently, Eminem brought the beef up again on his last album Music To Be Murdered By. In two songs on the album, which was released in January, Eminem calls out Machine Gun Kelly by name. This, of course, warranted a response from Machine Gun Kelly.
Now, it looks like the feud is still ongoing. In fact, the Tickets To My Downfall performer is seemingly referenced on not one, but two of Eminem’s new songs. On the track “Zeus,” Eminem raps, “Fair weather, wishy-washy/ She thinks Machine washed me/ Swear to God, man, her favorite rapper wish he’d crossed me.”
Meanwhile, on “Gnat,” Eminem seemingly compares Machine Gun Kelly to an actual gnat.
“They come at me with machine guns/ Like trying to fight off a gnat.”
Now, Machine Gun Kelly may have finally responded to Eminem’s latest diss tracks. On Dec. 17 and 18, MGK shared two brief tweets many theorize are about the new songs.
“I’m under your skin.”

Although Eminem has not confirmed that his lyrics are about Machine Gun Kelly, a lot of listeners are convinced.
It feels like eminem is running outta shit to rap about that he gotta mention that beef on every album he been putting out

He literally says MACHINE GUN, so it’s not so subliminal.
Also, in that you wrote this tweet, you know damn well who #Eminem is talking to.
I think you need to learn how to write a proper diss & respond and get off Twitter looking for emotional support. pic.twitter.com/d0vyA93tQy

Machine Gun Kelly isn’t the only person Eminem references on his new album. The rapper also finally responds to those comments Billie Eilish made about him last year. As well, Eminem offers an apology to Rihanna after a controversial track leaked following her legal case with Chris Brown.
“Zeus” and “Gnat” are available to stream below.
